Staten Island is a great place to live and play. We get to enjoy the benefits of the big city, but with a smaller, more community-centered lifestyle. Now that summer is over, the weather will start to cool down and we will get to experience all that autumn has to offer. Here are a few ways to have fun on Staten Island this fall.
- 1776 Peace Conference Celebration. Right after the Revolutionary War started, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and Edward Rutledge met with British Admiral Lord Richard Howe on Staten Island to try to bring an early end to the war. However, the negotiations failed, and the rest is history. Celebrate the 241st anniversary of this event on September 9th at Conference House Park.
- Von Thun Farms. Every weekend starting on September 23rd, you can visit Von Thun Farms for pumpkin picking, a corn maze, pick-your-own apples, hayrides, and more.
- Staten Island Oktoberfest. On October 14th, the Staten Island Marine Corps League will host its annual Oktoberfest. There will be games, live music, food and drink for the whole family to enjoy.
